Doctor Who & Companions

THE DOCTOR'S COMPANIONS Since the show's genesis, the Doctor has been traveling around space and time with his companions. Although rarely called a "companion" on screen, these friends, who usually (but not always) travel with him in the TARDIS, share adventures with the Doctor and keep him in check.
